okay this all started when i was playing MOHAA, (medal of honor : Allied assault) and i used the command Alt+ENTER to make mohaa into a window, so i could IM or change sumthing cuz MOHAA don't minimise. well one time i needed to close mohaa, so i had it selected and hit ALT+F4, closed it all right but i hear sounds from the game still playing. so i use CTRL+ALT+DEL (the most commonly used key combo in windows) bring up task manager, but it seems MOHAA isn't running, it's just playing a nice track from the game. (hint hint, im quite mad at my stupid windows box, i'd use my linux but mohaa doesn't run on linux) so i try maybe running mohaa again and closing it by clicking quit on the menu, and it says anotehr user has it open, so to save myself time i just log off and log back on, no restart.....
*AFTER LOG OFF & ON #1*
now i open MOHAA and it's opening in a window, a window only, the mouse keeps trailing off the window and clicking on otehr things, the window only has the X at the top to close it. so i close mohaa and open it again & again the normal way, then thinking if i use ALT+F4 again on it it will fix it. so i try the exact same thing i did which caused the track to play even though it was closed., same things happen and i log off and on again
*AFTER LOG OFF & ON #2*
"yay i think i fixed it" said the foolish writer of this thread after his log off and on. MOHAA opened in a window yes, but this time it had the icon next to the X for MAXIMISE, so i try and try but i click it a million times, nothing, no maximzation, or ne thing, hoping i get somewhere by actually restarting it i do so. i closed mohaa the regular way and restarted,
*AFTER RESTART*
i come back and log on, and all i see at the top of my screen is my start bar (i have mine at the top) no icons, nothing, this was my expression : :eek: <--- indeed. now shortcuts maynot be a big deal for u, but i had alot of stuff on there, i was quit unorganized, here is a SS of when i had the icons and without:
